Abstract

It is suggested that it is possible to define an equivalent electric charge for an intense laser pulse (which can be described as a photon bunch) propagating in a plasma. It is also shown that this equivalent charge can be a source of new radiation processes in an inhomogeneous plasma. The results are extended to the case of a neutrino bunch, which is coupled to the plasma by weak nuclear forces.
